Kualoa Ranch

Oah'u, Hawai'i

Kualoa Ranch Wedding venue

It's finally happened! You are engaged, and now you must start planning your Hawaii wedding. The style options are endless when collaborating with nature, and Kualoa Ranch offers a variety of outdoor venue options for your ceremony and reception.

If you weren't aware already, Kualoa is the site of numerous Hollywood movies. These include but are not limited to Jurassic Park, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Jumanji. So that alone is a pretty unique and fun detail. One of my favorite options Kualoa has is their Jumanji Venue. These grounds are in a remote valley location. Because of that, all services and products such as water, lighting, electricity, restrooms, tent rental, tables & chairs are your responsibility of you to book and get set up. Expect to have your own transportation to this venue also. The sweeping mountain views and vast space make this an unforgettable spot for your Hawai'i wedding.

If you are looking for a beachside option, they have you covered with Secret Island. This location is set on white sandy beaches for that dreamy tropical island feel that couples love. This space is only available for ceremonies, so you will have to celebrate your reception at one of their other stunning reception venues. Luckily everything is within a short drive of each other, so travel is easy for you and your guests.


The Dragon Boat Lawn & Hale Nanea is a fun, unique space with great history. This beautiful space is located at the base of the sacred 1000 ft high Kanehoalani mountain peak, , Paliku Gardens provides guests with beautiful views of Kaneohe Bay, rolling pastures, green gardens, and iconic Mokoli’i Island, aka “Chinaman’s Hat.” The site consists of two large lawn areas, an upper garden, as well as an open-air pavilion. All the amenities you need to create an elevated affair for your family and friends.



One of the many reasons to choose Kualoa Ranch is its competitive price. The venues range from 2000-3000 a day and go down considerably if you choose a weekday date. With these unreal backdrops, these are a steal for any luxurious destination wedding.




The most important aspect that I appreciate about this space is that you can truly get a farm-to-table experience here. They produce their own beef, oysters, produce, and shrimp. Then you know that you are contributing to the local economy and helping the community.
